Black Cat #2

As teased at the end of the series' opening issue, the Black Fox has arrived to hire Felicia Hardy and her team for an impossible heist. Not every place in the Marvel Universe is easily broken into, and some are nearly impossible. The item of interest to the Fox lies deep within one of the most heavily guarded spots in New York, Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sactorum.

Picking up another loose thread from the first issue, enemies of enemies become friends as Ocampo is made an offer he can't refuse.

Black Cat #2 teases the reader for the first few pages before revealing the location. Knowing her own limits, the Black Cat enlists the help of a doped-up magician to deal with the inexplicable the team will face once inside. Despite the bizarre sights and obstacles they traverse, the plan goes mostly to plan... that is until the Cat looses control of Xander only moments after putting her paws on her prize leading to all kinds of complications and obstacles between the Black Cat and the front door. Worth a look.
